Reply To: I'm liking my new 4-12×50 Hawke Airmax, so far!
I have next model Airmax 30 SF 4-16×50. I agree this is decent air rifle scope, most of others air rifle scopes that I’ve see are MUCH worse quality.
But compared to standard scopes aka Leupold, Trijicon, Zeiss etc. Hawke 4-16×50 is really heavy, and optics are really really bad – one can go Wikipedia and search for optical aberrations. Hawke Airmax got all of them! I can not imagine how bad are bigger magnification hawke scopes.
Hawke is pretty expensive – for about $100 above one can decent Leupold. Leupold is lighter, has much better glass, but has no close range parallax and mil dot – that is the problem and we end up buying Hawke.
Ps. Just looked at your pics and fixed my post – I have Airmax 30 SF and yours is Airmax, so price wise yours is much more affordable price than Leupold.
